VA-Space and Equipment Planning System (VA-SEPS)

VA-SEPS

The VA-Space and Equipment Planning System (VA-SEPS) is a computerized space and equipment planning tool developed collaboratively by Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs, for use on all VA health care projects.

Based on answers to input data questions, VA-SEPS creates a baseline space program, the Program for Design (PFD) based on the VA Space Planning Criteria, and an equipment plan/cost estimate for a health care project based on answers to input data questions, using a series of mathematical and logical formulas, driven by VA Space Planning Criteria and Equipment Guide List.

VA-SEPS was fully deployed in 2007.  Regular updates are provided to users who are registered and authorized to work on VA and DoD health care projects.  SEPS training is required prior to receiving access to the software and the SEPS website.  Updates and other important information are provided via the SEPS 3.0 Website.

Please call Office of Construction & Facilities Management, Facilities Quality Service, Gary M. Fischer, Architect, 202-632-4898 for assistance.
